Being visually oriented people, both of us have used a variety of cameras (almost always inexpensive) to document our surroundings, capture moments, and create art. From early years taking grainy 110 photos on school trips to later blurred Polaroids and Super-8 films we've maintained our individual photographic curiosity.
That explorational interest in image making and a bit of DIY spirit first lead Gayla to realize that medium format photography wasn't only for Hasselblad owners and that seemingly obsolete bakelite Brownies were totally viable cameras. Davin soon tagged along but has yet to jump into the medium format world.
Despite some university photography classes, our use of cameras has for the most part been untechnical and even experimental. We jokingly refer to ourselves as pro-am photographers since while our visual skills are fairly sharp we are still novices behind the lens.
When we're not out trolling the alleys of Toronto for beautiful urban decay we run a design company called Fluffco.
